Benefits of After-Hours Clinics

As illustrated in certain qualitative analyses conducted by the Journal of General Internal Medicine, primary care and after-hours care are beginning to merge. Being able to address concerns without checking into an emergency room or urgent care facility is extremely beneficial to patients.

Additional benefits of going to an after-hours clinic within your normal primary care organization include, but are not limited to:

  • Knowing your health insurance will be accepted
  • Shorter wait times
  • Medical records are already on file
  • More personalized care
